Expanding Through Faith

COMPETITION, MO. – When Ralph Koehler, who was born and raised in the Competition, Mo., area, went looking for pastureland to rent, he had no idea what he would find. Looking over nearby land, he stopped at a house, not that far from his home, just down the road from the Competition store and knocked on the door. He explained his situation to the owner of 80 acres across the road from his parents, Ralph and Mary Koehler, in eastern Laclede County. He was looking to lease more land and increase his cattle operation. He currently has a 40-head cow/calf operation with commercial cows, but he wants to gradually expand that to a registered Red Angus operation.

Exhibitors prepare for 2022 fair

Hundreds flocked to the Laclede County Fairgrounds Saturday, May 14 for the market animal weigh-ins. “This is the first stage of the market animal show and sale,” explained Laclede County Fair President Glenn Raef. “We’re having our hog and lamb weigh in and what they’ll do is take the wight, get them entered and it’ll be done again in 60 days at the fair. This way we can figure the daily rate of gain.” Each animal is ear tagged after weigh in so fair officials can confirm the animal returning for the fair is the same animal present at weigh in. Once weighed at the fair, the animals undergo judging and ultrasounds to measure the loin and determine backfat which is then formulated to come up with a live show score, daily rate of gain score and carcass score. Once they’re ranked, champions are awarded. For more on this story see Wednesday's LCR.
